Support The Combine
Combine Points (CPs) - The Combine Supports You

The Combine has grown significantly within the last several months. Some of you have been a part of this sim for a long time and have seen the ebbs and flows of the life of the Combine. Others have only been here a short while, and are just now beginning to experience all that the Combine has to offer. But no matter the length of time you have spent here, you all have something in common: you are part of a community, a family - and families support each other. There are many ways you can support the Combine, but let's first look at how the Combine supports you, the player.

What Combine points are (for a more detailed explanation of the CP, refer to the FAQ):

  • CPs are Out of Character (OOC) rewards that members receive from the Admin.
What Combine points are NOT:
  • Currency in the Combine universe.
Most simply put, the CP is the way the Admin rewards you, the player, for various activities you do in support of the Combine. CPs can then be exchanged for Credits (the actual currency of the universe), ships, vehicles, etc. There are primarily two ways to earn CPs: OOC work done for the Combine, or financial support.
 
Work and Pay - You Support the Combine

Will Work for Food
There are numerous ways for Combine members to work in support of the Combine. For those interested in finding some of this work, visit the Questions for Admin forum in the Message Center. In your post, list all of your available skills (graphics, types of programming, technical writing, etc.), your online availability, and multiple ways to get in contact with you (e-mail address and ICQ numbers are the most effective overall). One of the Admin or Assistant Admins will reply to your thread when a job that matches your skills is found. If you wish payment it will be in CPs.

It All Comes Down to the Money

A more immediate way to gain CPs is by financially supporting the Combine. You can do this through direct monetary donations through Paypal or phone calls.

A direct monetary donation is the other way to support the sim.  Although this method costs you more personally, the rewards both for yourself and the Combine are exponentially more. The process is quite simple, too.  By clicking on the following link,

You can use your credit card, or bank account in some countries, to make a payment directly to the Combine through Veynom. Do not forget to include your handle in the communication field. For those living in Europe, and preferring a direct transfer to the European Combine bank account, contact Veynom at Veynom@swcombine.com. If there is enough call for a North American bank account we will look into the possibility of setting one up there. These accounts are solely responsible for managing the finances of the Combine, and are in no way tied to the bank accounts of any one member of the sim. It is also possible to transfer to an Australian bank account, but it is not a Combine-only account.

"Get to the rewards," you're probably thinking. Alright, alright! Here are the conversion rates for your financial donations:

  • $1 = 1 000 CPs
  • €1 = 1 000 CPs
  • Other currencies are converted to USD or Euro, whichever offers the best rate.
CPs can currently be used to purchase ships, vehicles, range of custom images and even custom items. The list of CP rewards will later be extended to include items, weapons, droids and more surprises! Ninety-five percent of the Combine's budget since September, 2001 has come from your generous donations, so you can see how important this aspect of helping the sim has become.


You can also make donations using only your phone. However, due to the various fees inherent ot this system, you will only receive 500 CPs for each donated Euro. Please check the CP section for the complete instructions.

We wish to make it clear that any and all money collected through the above means will only be used to meet the financial needs of the Combine. Each donation you make not only benefits you directly, but helps to improve the Combine for every player now and in the future!
